This is a must have on any trip to Pasadena. The burgers are really traditional burgers with Thousand Island. The pies are better than mom makes. The milkshakes are made to order. Oh yes and come back for breakfast! Pancakes are fluffy.

First, Pie N'Burger is CASH ONLY! Casual, local burger place located near Cal Tech and stores on Lake Ave. Sometimes street parking is available. If not, there is a parking garage nearby on Lake. As for food, the name says it all! They have burgers,...More
